As of August 3rd, 2023, we are only able to service the Halifax Regional Municipality (as far as Musquodoboit Harbour to the East). While we have tried to accommodate visits in other parts of Nova Scotia in the past, our resources are currently too limited to send veterinarians outside our core service area. We do apologize for any inconvenience, and we thank you all for your interest in our services.

What about children? Should they be present?

Children must be considered individually in terms of their age and emotional maturity. If they are old enough to understand, it may help to have a discussion with them about death and the process of euthanasia, then allow them to choose whether or not they’d like to be present for some or all of the procedure. Be honest with them and share your feelings so they can feel comfortable sharing theirs. Consider having a friend or relative available to be with the children if they become upset or choose not to stay.
